Red Jasper: Stone of Endurance, Nurturing & Tranquility
When I first came across Jasper I was fascinated by its rustic colouring and earthy tones. The unique patterns and images in jasper stones remind me of little snippets of nature’s landscapes. I later learned that this stone is an opaque variety of quartz where the unique colour patterns are created by natural impurities and the presence of other minerals such as iron.
Since antiquity, Jasper has been considered a powerful and protective stone to be worn by shamans, kings and priests. Red Jasper specifically was considered the stone of rain bringers and nurturers. It was worn as a talisman by warriors as it staunched the blood when wounded and instilled courage when heading into battle. The Ancient Egyptians associated it with the fertilizing blood of Mother Isis and many Native American tribes called Red Jasper the blood of Mother Earth, using it to stimulate health and re-birth.
Jasper is an elemental Earth stone with a slow and constant frequency that matches the electromagnetic energies of the planet. It enables one to be more conscious of natural surroundings and helps use one’s energy in a balanced manner. Red Jasper clears and stabilizes the aura to a state of peace. It brings problems to light and instills the courage to face unpleasant tasks and rectify unjust situations. Red Jasper also promotes physical strength and its gently stimulating energy enhances stamina and endurance so is helpful for individuals working physically strenuous jobs.
This is an artist’s stone as it stimulates the imagination and manifests new ideas. Its energy brings focus, self-mastery and determination to see projects through to the end.
A powerful protecting stone, it can help ward off danger and shield against harmful electromagnetic fields and radiation. Red Jasper’s steady frequency calms the emotional body, creating a lasting stable energy for overcoming illness and improving overall health. It detoxifies the circulatory system and strengthens the heart. Wearing red jasper jewelry shields against psychic attack and protects from others draining your energy.
Red Jasper helps maintain balance and stability during difficult emotional times. It aids in releasing shame and guilt as well as alleviating stress and inducing tranquility.
